We arrived after a long day of sightseeing and were welcomed by the very knowledgeable owner. She gave us lots of handy hints and tips to make the most of our flying visit. All food (including bread!) is home cooked so you have to let them know 3 hours in advance if you're there for dinner. We didn't do this... More

Stayed here for a long weekend, competitive rates and friendly quiet hotel. Only 8 rooms so never crowded, food good, more on the lines of home-cooking which suited us. 3 course around £30 pp. Great breakfast. close to valley of goats and just by the cliff railway, so ideally situated.

We stayed in this hotel in 1980 on our honeymoon and it was so nice to return again. The room was beautifully decorated with a big comfortable bed and feather pillows. The views from the room were breath taking and you could relax in the bath and still see the sea. The staff were all friendly and very accommodating. The... More

This hotel was recommended by work colleague who often visits. The hotel is well used but we found our room to be extremely comfortable. The bed was lovely and the views are amazing. Bathroom smart and soaps/shampoos supplied Downside - hardly any phone signal and couldn't access WiFi at all in the hotel.
